Pond Liner? by skidog
I want to put a small pond or water feature in the back. Came across a 24'x24' piece of rubber roofing 1/8" to 3/16" thick. I've had a friend raise fish and grow plants in this same type of liner and I've also heard that it can't be done and everything will die because of the type of rubber. Who...

using carpet to line a pond by seneca
I'm about to install a pond and have heard that some people use a special fabric layer on the soil, before they put the liner down. Apparently it stops little stones sticking through.

Liner Leak by Bob
I beginning to suspect I have a leak in my liner. Other than the water level showing the height where the leak may be located, are there any suggestions for pin pointing the leak on the perimeter of the pond?

Create and own beautiful Bonsai Trees by [email protected]
